Part of $4.8M downtown Kennesaw revamp causing road closure for weeks

A downtown Kennesaw intersection is closed for a couple weeks as part of a $4.8 million project.

Crews are replacing and improving the sidewalks around Watts Drive and Little General Cloggers Lane, said Kennesaw’s public works director Ricky Stewart.

He said construction was on the north side of the intersection and this new phase brings it to the south side of the intersection.

That’ll last between two and three weeks, he said. And about two or three weeks after that, the road should be open again, Stewart added.

Signs will direct drivers at intersection of J.O. Stephenson Avenue and Little General Cloggers in addition to Watts and Main streets.

This construction is part of the larger, $4.8 million project of widening and improving Watts and Dallas streets, along with parking. That pricetag also includes the plaza renovation at City Hall.

The city said the work will be funded by the 2016 SPLOST, or Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax.
